Tip of the Day – 9/2/2010


Leveling your aquarium is often a step that is overlooked, especially when building your own stand. Many people try to do it themselves and don’t always have the proper tools to do the job right. An aquarium that does not sit level on a stand is prone to cracking or leaking over the long term. The glass or acrylic can’t bear the weight any longer and something eventually fails, whether it be a pane of glass or a joint where two sides meet.
